About Melanie

Born and educated in London, Melanie first fuelled her passion of design through a role with a leading interior designer, Louise Bradley, in Knightsbridge.

With her capabilities, knowledge, and skills, it was clear to see that Melanie’s expertise was soon attracting high profile roles with some of the world’s leading design houses and architects including; Tino Zervudachi Interior Designer – London, Kengo Kuma Architect – Tokyo. Yachts and Aviation; Business Boeing Jets – USA, Winch Designs – London, Bond Technical Management Audio/Visual – Monaco. Colefax & Fowler Group, Charles Jencks renowned landscaper, Graff Diamonds, Chanel, Chloe and Annabel’s. Her responsibilities within these companies allowed Melanie to exhibit her exemplary design and project management skills, showcasing her ability to oversee property builds and refurbishments, implement budget control in multiple currencies as well as procure and manage sub-contractors and teams on an international level.

As her reputation accelerated, so did the number of private commissions. Working directly with personal clients allowed Melanie to demonstrate her versatility in undertaking bespoke design briefs; from sourcing antiques in European antique fairs to commissioning bespoke artwork and furniture for private house refurbishments. With over fifteen years’ experience, Lemiena now boasts an enviable track record of clients, design achievements and award-winning showcases, placing Melanie as an influential designer in the UK.





My vision was to create a platform on which to influence, demonstrate and deliver my two areas of expertise; Project Management and House Management. House Management is an in -demand, discrete and trusted service, offering an outstanding level of personal management & maintenance for beautiful properties. We care for and look after each house as if it were our own.

For interiors, my intent is simple. To deliver beautiful bespoke design statements and solutions – on time and ideally under budget. All clients benefit from my 20 plus years interiors knowledge, international experience and are granted full access to my private network of industry specialists.

Both services endorse my core values of quality, honesty and innovation, coupled with my desire to listen to and involve my Clients at all levels and ‘get the job done!’
